SOME OF WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
The Journey Project Community Outings & Socials
Kassandras StoryBeing a trans woman means there are few options for housing once released from prison. The Journey Project is one of the only programs in King County that will accept LGBTQ+ people. The Journey Project helped me obtain a career in truck driving as well as helped me regain my self esteem after incarceration. This program really helps people, thank you.
Maleanas StoryI had nowhere to release to and then I found The Journey Project. They accepted me for who I am and helped me to grow into the woman I am today. I can't express the good this program does for the community and those needing a chance to get it right. I will forever be greatful to The Journey Project.
Charlies StoryWhen I arrived at The Journey Project I had nothing. The Journey Project gave clothing, food and a safe place to live and thrive. They provided me the tools to make a life, real life for myself. I wouldn't be here if it where not for The Journey Project.
Michaels StoryThe Journey Project gave me a chance to get my life right. They helped me get to all of my medical appointments and always gave me grace when I would slip. They gave me a new way of thinking and acting. I now have a job and have been clean and sober for over a year. This is all in part because The Journey Project believed in me and never gave up on me.
James StoryA friend of mine told me about The Journey Project while I was still inside prison. I didn't know if I was ready for a structured program. I decided to come to The Journey Project once released. As soon as I arrived at the house in Des Moines it felt like home. I was greated and made to feel like I belonged for once in my life. I was able to gain a great job and also attend college thanks to the help of The Journey Project. This is a great place to change your old ways and become a new person in the community.
